Furcal, Kuroda Likely Keys to Dodgers Sweeping Cubs in NDLS

DODGERS-CUBS, Game 3:  The Diamond Mind sim is feeling a bit smug about this series, having predicted the Dodgers to upset the Cubs and take the series.  Can Chicago start a comeback, or are the Fated Ones about to start a comeback?  The Sim's projections for game 3 indicated toss-up…

The Sim Says Starters Solid, Pens Shakey in Game 2 of Angels-Red Sox ALDS

ALDS Game 2 - ANGELS-RED SOX: Game one of this series went just as The Sim predicted - a toss-up about as even as can be, with Boston starter Jon Lester being the key to a Red Sox victory and David Ortiz not being a factor.  Diamond Mind got that…

The Sim Says Tougher Game for Rays in ALDS, But Still Favored

RAYS-WHITE SOX, Game 2 Our Diamond Mind simulation showed the Tampa Bay Rays as heavy favorites (63.9%) to win game one (and the whole series), and the Rays did not disappoint, winning 6-4.  After doing 1,000 simulation runs of game two, the Rays are favored again, though not as heavily…

The Sim is Feeling Smug; Predicted Phillies-Dodgers NLCS Looking Good

Here's a recap of today's predictions from The Sim, Imagine Sports' simulation software, along with the real-life results from the games: RAYS-WHITE SOX, game 1:  Well, our Diamond Mind simulation picked the Rays and that the James Shields would deliver.  That he did, and so did the Rays.  The Sim…

The Sim Predicts Sabathia's Durability is Key in MIL-PHI Game 2

For game one, we said the Phillies were big favorites, having won 676 of our 1,000 sim runs.  We just finished 1,000 runs of game 2 on our Diamond Mind simulation, and The Sim expects different results today.  With C.C. Sabathia on the mound, that's no surprise, really.  But the…

Cubs' Zambrano Huge Factor in Game 2, But LA's Game 1 Win Increases NLCS Chances to 74%

Another coin toss!  Like yesterday's Angels-Bosox game, this one is extremely close - the Dodgers won 502 of the 1,000 runs of The Sim, with the Dodgers averaging 4.8 runs to 4.6 runs for the Cubbies (making this the second-closest sim we've ever done!)   That indicates we might see a…

The Sim Heavily Favors Rays in Game 1 over White Sox, But Intangibles Loom

Of all the playoff teams, the Tampa Bay Rays project as our heaviest favorite to win its series and the most likely to sweep by far, and game one projects the same way.  Out of 1,000 simulation runs of game 1, the Rays won 639 games to the just 361…

Imagine Sports Simulation Opens 3-0, Accurately Calls Shots in MLB LDS

Predicting baseball games is a precarious business - even the bad teams win about 40 percent of the time.  That said, we knocked the ball out of the park on Wednesday! (see details below)  More importantly to us, however, is that our simulation is correctly projecting the underlying fundamentals.  As…

Boston's Lester, Ortiz Key in Tight Red Sox-Angels ALDS

Toss a coin!  We ran the simulation for game 1 of the Angels-BoSox series.  Out of 1,000 simulation runs, the Angels won 501 games to the Red Sox 499... but the Red Sox average 4.0 runs, compared to 3.8 for the Angels!  We have never had a simulation so close…

Imagine Sports Sim Nails Method Behind Phillies Game 1 NLDS Win

Well, did we nail game one of the Phillies-Brewers or what?  We said that walks would be the key, especially likely from Howard and Victorino, and that Hamels would get the win.  Sure enough, a 3-1 Phils win behind Hamels, and they had 6 walks, 3 from Howard and 2…

Cubs-Dodgers Game 1 a Virtual Tie

We just finished 1,000 runs of game 1 of the Cubs-Dodgers series on our Diamond Mind simulation.   The results?  It's close!  L.A. won 536 times to 464 for the Cubs, so this is almost a toss-up.  The Dodgers scored an average of 4.8 runs compared to 4.1 for the Cubbies. …

Imagine Sports Sim Predicts Dodgers, Phillies Take NLDS

The 2008 regular season was another good run for fans of the Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies, both repeating as division champions.  Those fans are hoping, however, that their favorite teams do not repeat their failures in the 2007 playoffs, when the red-hot Diamondbacks defeated the Cubbies while the super-red-hot…
